Hi Joe…personally, the lesson I learned in recording live concerts, is to buy in pairs, so take your budget, split it in two, and buy two. AKG would be more realistic in this regard. That said, you’ll certainly want your “baby”, in a nice ribbon or tube mic, but for me, these spend most of their time in their cases, as opposed to the “field soldiers” I used for concerts. I think you’ll find, having mics matched in characteristics, makes for a much more”buttery” recording. I’d posit yours is a good start, with Rode. Stick with them, get a Neuman or such for soloists, and studio work.
